In institutional environments, Troldtekt cement-bonded wood wool can help soften up the architecture. On the one hand, the structure of the acoustic panels contrasts with the smoother surfaces, and on the other hand, it is possible to have the panels made with milled grooves, patterns, or painted in warm custom colours.
The flexible design can also support the healing principles in the architecture. Solgaven in Valby near Copenhagen is a residential care facility for blind and visually impaired residents. The facility is therefore designed so that it is easy to find your way around, and each floor is assigned its own colour scheme. The ground floor of the facility is sand-coloured, and the next two floors have green walls, doors and floors. Above, there are two yellow floors and two blue floors.
Double-height orangeries bathed in natural light connect the floors. One wall of the orangeries is clad in wooden strips to create a vertical garden, and the opposite wall features a Troldtekt rhomb design solution in varied hues to match the floor/wall colour scheme of the respective floors.
